Title: Iguanas falling from trees
Post by: galfert on January 25, 2020, 03:23:10 AM
The NWS in Miami accurately predicted that iguanas would be falling from trees. Essentially that it would be raining iguanas.

The temperature the past few days dropped to near freezing in Central Florida. Iguanas are not native to Florida. They are an invasive species that has been recking havoc and getting worse every year. These animals are cold blooded and are not adapted to these extreme temperatures. I'd hardly call near freezing an extreme temperature, but for these animals it is just that.
